Liverpool transfers: Alexis Mac Allister responds to Real Madrid speculation

Liverpool signed Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton last summer with the Argentina international going on to become of the Reds’ best players of the season.

The 25-year-old finished his first campaign at Anfield with seven goals and seven assists in 46 appearances overall but contributed so much more for Jurgen Klopp in midfield.

The former Boca Juniors playmaker came in for a bargain £35 million, representing rare value in a transfer market that sometimes seems to defy logic.

However, some worrying signs regarding Mac Allister’s future have begun to emerge in recent weeks.

A report from Directvsports in Argentina claims Madrid are making moves to sign Mac Allister and that there is a ‘secret’ release clause contained in his Liverpool contract meaning interested parties can sign the World Cup winner for £70m.

Alexis is under contract on Merseyside until 2028 but Madrid will soon be looking for a pair of high-quality midfielders.

Toni Kroos has just announced his imminent retirement - which will commence after Euro 2024 - while Luka Modric will turn 40 next year and is in discussions regarding a one-year contract extension.

The latest reports are that Mac Allister fits the bill for the Bernabeu and Liverpool MUST safeguard against losing one of their star players.

This week, the midfield schemer flew back to Argentina following the conclusion of the Premier League season.

Alexis responds to Madrid transfer speculation

Argentina are defending their Copa America title in the United States at the tournament that kicks off on June 20.

Mac Allister will play a key part alongside Lionel Messi and co, with focus now turning to international duties.

Upon landing in Buenos Aires, ESPN Argentina caught up with Alexis and put the question of Real Madrid’s interest to him.

Mac Allister wasn’t giving much away stating only that he wouldn’t be commenting on any assumptions and adding that he was content with Liverpool.

Rushing through the airport, he said: "I'm not talking about assumptions, I'm very happy in Liverpool."

This one has a long way to go but at least we have got indications that Alexis is not agitating for a move to Madrid.
